Benjamin Britten was among the most renowned composers of the last century, his work distinguished by British quality while also incorporating modern techniques and innovative language. Completed in 1957, Noye’s Fludde is a finely honed one-act opera based on the biblical story of Noah’s ark. The venue also breaks out of conventional performance space, fusing together what is fashionably modern within the context of an opera performance.
UK Now is the largest festival of British arts and creative industries ever held in China. Between April and November 2012 it is bringing hundreds of events to at least 17 cities across China.
